to increase any tax rates. how can it be that we have the rates the president is proposing back in the clinton years and the had the longest period of uninterrupted growth in the nation's history, 23 million jobs created, would balance the budget and were paying down the debt. if those tax rates are so needed to job creation, how is it that we have those very rates that the country was doing the best it has ever done? how can it be? the ideological rigidity is not fact-based. it is not fact-based. one of the things they are saying now is that if you go to a top rate of 39.6, that will have enormous consequences on economic growth. cbo has studied that issue. they have told us it would change economic growth by 1/10 of 1%. extending the tax cut would add -- extending all the middle class tax cuts would add 1.3% to economic growth. the overwhelming driver here is extending tax relief for the middle class. at least those making below $250,000. i go to another issue. there are income tax rates currently at 35% tax rate. what about people who are paying a rate of 15%? -- how about the unearned whe
words from hillary clinton lately. the state department tells us she is still recovering from the flu and concussion. but this isn't like her. is this her illness worse than we know? or is something else going on? first, though, the journal news is the newspaper for new york suburban westchester county. that paper is becoming the news all by itself after it decided to publish the names and addresses of all of the known gun permit holders in its readership area. the paper justifyding publication, the statement saying the massacre in newtown remains top of mind for many of our readers. in the past week conversation on our opinion pages and website has been focus order gun control. readers are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhoods. we obtained the names and addresses of westchester and rock land residents that are licensed to own handguns through routine freedom of information law public records request. here now is david, huffington post publisher blogger and lenny mccalter, contributor for the chicago defender. good to have you here. lenny, nothing illegal
'neill and bill clinton and president eisenhower, we need leadership on not just taxing rich people, but we contact them and it wouldn't help the medicare fiscal cliff. greg: others are skeptical, noting that high-profile meetings are for show often times and all about tactics. we expect the president will try a stopgap measure extending middle-class tax rates, extending unemployment benefits for some 2 million americans, do some small spending cuts now, but not entitlement reform. an ally of the white house and the house of representatives offered this. >> this is not for show. it is a last-ditch effort by the president to bring the congressional leaders together to try and get at least a small package. a small deal together before the new year. in order to avoid some of the tax hikes of the fiscal cliff and to deal with some of the unemployment. greg: senator rob portman, a republican from ohio said that if lawmakers in the white house can get through this fiscal cliff, we will immediately face another fiscal cliff, if you will. the debt ceiling, noting that are dead is not sustainable. s

the number of investigations especially of the clinton administration. what do you see as your legacy of that tenure? >> i think bill clinton, president clinton and secretary as secretary -- hilary as secretary of state do not like me very much. i was chair of the government oversight committee during the time we were investigating whitewater and we were investigating campaign contributions that came from sources outside the united states and from various people. there was an awful lot to that. we had people testifying like ohnny chonung, they had contributed money to gain favor with the white house. and they came into the kitchen at hong kong and said we wonder -- we like your president and we want to contribute to his campaign. the man who said that was the equivalent of the cia. these were people who were under oath and swore to this and we also had over 100 people take the fifth amendment or flee the country. there was a lot there. that is not to say that president clinton did not do some good things. he worked with newt gingrich and we got out from under some difficult financial
. he talked with c-span about his past investigations of the clinton investigation and the oversight role of congress. this is 30 minutes. >> how would you say the state is? >> it has changed a great deal. it is not the same as when i came 1983. there seemed to be more comedy. tip o'neill was speaker. i will never forget he was the first time he was on the floor raising cane with democrats. and he came down and started giving me the dickens. after that we became very good friends and played golf together. bob michael was a wonderful leader. there was a spirit of camaraderie even though we had differences politically then that we do not have now. now it is much more combative. i have a lot of friends on the democratic side of the aisle, very good friends. as far as working things out is not as easy as it used to be. >> what are some of the root causes? >> i think and i am not pointing fingers, when we went after jim wright, newt was the speaker and jim was forced out of office. they went after newt. the combat became very personal. that is one of the things that started this movement.
gingrich and bill clinton got together to reach an agreement it was very controversial. newt gingrich said -- this is october 20, 1998. "i will say to each and every member of this house, unless they have a plan they think can get 218 votes over here, can pass through a filibuster in the senate, and get signed, there is no responsible vote except yes." america expects its congress to get to yes. we are prepared to work with the speaker and with the republican leadership. we all need to be willing to work with the president of united states to get to yes, for our country and for our constituents. now, and want to yield to my very dear friend, the assistant leader of the democratic caucus, my friend jim clyburn, from south carolina. >> think you very much, representative hoyer. last year, when the tea party republicans stymied the efforts of the deficit reduction committee that we called "the supercommittee," we said at the time that it would take a definitive election to decide the matter. november 6, the american people spoke. the american people spoke very clearly, and i think decisively.
president clinton said if there is anything he can do to help he will do it. i said, can i say this, he said, yes, go right ahead. this is a work in progress. i would like to urge anyone in the senate to call us. we would like to sit down with you and hear your ideas. we would be hopeful that you would join with us. let me end with one thing. 1993, i got a bunch of gun magazines and went through them and did a study of the state of the art of these guns then. we just we did that. i have on my desk these magazines that will show the state of the art today in 2012. i cannot tell you how much more sophisticated and technologically advanced these weapons are. all stemming from military weapons. there are even devices that can be put in legally that make them fully automatic. as he read the literature, you see the enormous killing power that is up there on the streets for virtually anybody to buy or obtained. >> you mentioned you have been meeting people and hearing from them. i was curious whether you thought the and are a struck an appropriate tone today. -- the and are a struck an appropriate
and a year after columbine in april of 2000 and president bill clinton pledged $60 million for the cops in schools program, placing hundreds of police officers in hundreds of schools, 12 years ago. >> jamie: a lot of folks are talking about that today, rick, thanks. >> rick: switching gears, folks in the midwest digging out after the massive snowstorm. iowa crews are working to restore power to thousands who lost their lights at the height of the storm. and, record snowfall in green bay, wisconsin. packers fans, clearing 10 inches of snow from the lambeau field, the packers fans own the team, and, a powerful storm system moved across the country and, making for dangerous conditions, and marie molina is live at the fox extreme weather center. >> the system that produced blizzard conditions and, heavy snow, now is exiting the northeast and it is still producing travel issues today. we have delays, in the airport hubs like new york, and actually newark airport international and also across the jfk airport. so again delays out there and some of those are actually over an hour, and we have s

advocates pressured hillary clinton. joining us is hilary rose. an irish citizen nevy brown delair woman of love institute. it is so good to have you hered today. ireland is a catholic prolife country and why is this drawing so much attention for those who advocate for abortion. >> first thing we need to say . it was a tragic case. i am a mother of four young girls . everybody hate to hear about maternal death. we feel so sad for the mother and baby. but in ireland those deaths are rare. in the unitedination we are the most safe place . so this death caused a huge amount of incision . there was a hysteria about what happened had nothing to do with abortion at all. it was broken in the most senizationalist it went all over the world. woman denoticed termination dies in the hospital . it is said to the world that ireland stapped said accused of letting her die. that's not the facts. the facts show and emerge and tell a totally different story. irish medical experts came forward and explained that in ireland where abortion is illegal. doctors are always fro to intervene to save the motherac
hours of the close of the clinton administration back in 2001. his son, 30 years old, former child commander of a child army, emerges as the president and he remains in power up to this time. his daddy was supported by the rwandan, angolans, zimbabweania. when he got to power, he told them all, i will be the one who controls the natural resources of this country. after he is assassinated -- what attributes do you attribute to the sun as far as his leadership abilities? joseph kabila, who was recently elected in 2011, which many characterized as a rigged election -- what do we know about the current president, and why do we support leaders in africa to exploit their citizens and the poverty that in sue's makes them more susceptible -- ensues makes them more susceptible to extremist elements, like al-qaeda? you will receive 100 virgins when you do the suicide attack, and whatnot. how can we get ourselves out of this, america? somebody talk to me, please. >> i think you are right. this is part of a generation of african leaders that are not going to move their countries forward. this
clinton had bill cohen. so he's getting hit from so many different sides. >> he's getting -- and he's getting hit from republicans. he's getting hit from every side. i think it was an obtuse choice. and what the white house has done in floating his name and then being m.i.a. so, yeah, chuck hagel's nomination is d.o.a., and in the meantime, the white house is m.i.a. he's got to work really, really hard to find a nominee who is offensive to democrat-based constituencies like gay advocates, like israel advocates, like environmentalists and who is also offensive to republicans. you really have to work hard to find that combination. >> i think that's a totally strong point. he has no one in his corner, basically, except the president. >> and you talked about bill cohen as secretary of defense. did you know bill cohen got nominated and approved, unanimously, by the u.s. senate? >> john kerry is liked by more republicans than this guy. >> chuck schumer won't support -- >> a very different time. but we've got a record of democratic presidents picking republicans to be secretary of defense,
secretary clinton should testify? >> she said she wanted to. i'm sure she will. it is getting down toward the end of her term. whether there will be a hearing or not given the time that is available, we don't know. but, yes, she said she would testify. she did have a concussion and that delayed it. i suspect she will testify, but we have to get yond the -- beyond the blame game and we have to get past those things that really will protect our embassies and consulates and americans around the world. that's a tough job, and it is going to require a real concerted effort and frankly to put aside the blame game and get on with the specific recommendation. >> congressman, really appreciate your time. >> friends and family we bid aloha. they are being remembered for his decades of service in the senate and as a war hero winning the nation's highest military honor. he lost his right arm fighting in world war ii. at a sh what wash memorial -- at a washington memorial service he is expected to attend the final memorial with the first lady. >>> travel was a real nightmare for a lot of people earlie
. and advocates pressured secretary of state hillary clinton to address the issue during her recent trip to ireland. and joining us now is little lila rose, and the chairman of life institute. so good to have you both here today. and ireland has been a very catholic, pro-life country, but why is this particular case drawn so much attention from those who advocate for abortion? >> yes, well, i think one of the first things we need to say, governor, this is a tragic case, i'm a mother of four young girls. i think that everybody here our emotions, feel so sad for mother and baby who lost their lives, but it's important to remember that in ireland, maternity death are very, very rare and ireland, one of the safest places in the world for a mother to have a baby. and united nations recently said we're the most safe for a mother to have a baby so this death of course caused a huge amount of inquisition and people wondering what has happened. but in there theory that arose about the tragic death, was that this was actually nothing to do with abortion at all. so the day that the story was broken
clinton obviously runs the state department. she is on her way out. john kerry, the nominee to replace her. is this going to affect his confirmation hearings at all? >> reporter: jon, the state department says at their end they're trying to keep things as smooth as possible. >> secretary clinton as you heard her say before has pledged to have a smooth transition with her successor. i don't have any phone calls or other activities of hers to read out other than say she continues to be on the mend and continues to recover. >> reporter: we know that republican senators still have a lot of questions for secretary clinton. just a few days ago senator lindsey graham says he wants to go all the way back once again to those sunday show appearances ambassador susan rice made that are now-infamous and find out once and for all if secretary clinton was not available to go on the shows because she was sick and giving grief counseling. jon? jon: peter doocy. thank you. harris: an even bigger scandal may be brewing in d.c., one that could raise taxes for every single american. we can't emphasize that en
the teleprompter. newt gingrich. he said the republican party right now could not beat hillary clinton in 2016, but we're hearing the beginnings of the efforts to discredit her as a potential candidate. newt gingrich weighing in on hillary clinton. what about that one? >> is this going to come at the end of his second term with a moon colony? you know. newt gingrich coming to hillary clinton's defense, i suppose we shouldn't be surprised. i'm still going to have a head-wrenching moment because wasn't he the guy who had something to do with impeachment? it's nice that he's gone back to his olympian position of musing on the state of politics. he couldn't really predict his own politics in his own primary very well. it's true that people might try and throw rocks at her. i just think stepping out of the washington fray means that she doesn't need to deal with this right now. so in terms of her own position, it's not like she's a nominee. she has to deal with congress. she doesn't even -- she managed to dodge the whole situation on benghazi pretty well for herself. you know, the tougher questions
senator hillary clinton stopped by with her chief of staff to wish me a happy birthday the first year she was in the senate. it was just a few months after she hadrrived, and my staff was surprised -- and possibly a bit star-struck -- to see the former first lady walk into the room. we went on to work together in vital voices, a global partnership dedicated to supporting and empowering women leaders and social entrepreneurs in emerging economies. we alsoeamed up with senators mikulski and collins to assure public schools had the option to offer single-sex schools and classes. after i visited with secretary of education rod paige, the young women's leadership academy in the harlem area of new york city -- one of the fir and most successful pilot projects for girls puc public schools wih which i know the presiding officer is very familiar. anand the i remember the time i invited senator barbara mikulski to texas. because she has and i have worked together supporting nasa for so many years, and this year she chair and i am the ranking member of the subcommittee. we went to the space center b
incompetence what can you get fired over. >> clayton: hillary clinton is out with a concussion and could be senator john kerry going through the approval process x. we'll not have a approval process until we hear from secretary clinton. >> she said publicly she took responsibility . what are you doing to be accountable for the failure. the question is what did she know. did she know he was in danger or putting himself in danger. both roads lead back to her. they are critical to understanding the larger failures. >>> and the u.s. army is heading to africa . parts of the countries where we are seeing extremist growth. they are expanding in libya and mali and nigeria and turkey. this is an effort to make sure they are trainned extremist. it shows that al-qaida is not really defeated but emboldened. >> i ran an operating base. these are the same target and that tells me al-qaida is coming back . it was designed to be a soft power of command and stated to have no combat of power. we had a conference on my think tank know had a conference and people recognized the problem is. you have no comba
yesterday. we also didn't hear from current secretary of state hillary clinton still recovering from the same concussion that kept her from testifying before congress about the deadly raid on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it's unclear if her expected testimony down the road will come before or after kerry's confirmation hearings. kelly. >> kelly: a lot of people looking forward to see what will transpire with that testimony before congress. peter doocy, thank you. >> jamie: well, kelly, an update now on president obama and his family, their holiday plans. they're arriving in hawaii early this morning for the family vacation. touching down after midnight in honolulu, and releasing the president's final address to the nation before the the new year, here is a bit of it. >> that's what makes the season so special, getting to spend time with the people we love most. >> and this year, that's especially true for some of our military families, you see shall the war in iraq is over, the transition in afghanistan is underway, and after a decade of war, our heroes are coming home. all
politics the most, former president bill clinton. >> there's not a close second, is there? >> yeah, there might be. >> that campaign -- >> yep. just a few weeks after holding court at the democratic national convention, the former president kicked off his annual clinton global initiative conference in new york city. >> mika and i sat down with the president at the site of the cgi meeting on the same day that both president obama and mitt romney were set to speak there. >> how would you characterize how he's been handling the collective problems that we're seeing percolating across the middle east? >> well, i think that first of all, i think they've done pretty well in a very chaotic situation. the arab spring was always going to have ups and downs or bumps in the road or whatever you want to call it. in libya, the tragic situation of the lost of our ambassador and the other americans, it's worth pointing out a couple of things. first of all, most of the libyan people who were aware of what's going on like the united states, they like the fact that we aggressively supported them and
have you a little confused. fox and friends anchor clinton morris is here to answer questions. >> we got questions in from jew viewers. i got an hp lap top i want to put my phone to it but it says it will ee ras my ifshg phone data. >> you can do this. here's my tip. apple is moving away from sinking to a computer using a cord. in your phone or in your ipad go into icloud and start backing up using icloud that. means you don't have to be tethered to any one type of computer. but if you want to sink to your computer go on the new computer launch itunes as your new account type in your name and laufrp that account and when you connect that device you will be able to begin moving content over your songs and all of those things over. but i would say do icloud that way you don't have to be tied to any one die vice. >> sounds a lot simpler. a oo this is another question this comes in from diane. is there a way to connect my broadband air part to nexus tablet? >> air cards are the type you stick into the side of the lap top you use the usb input it is sticking out a little bit by planning.
amendment. really the religious freedom restoration act. signed by president clinton. it says that persons if they have any religious rights violate and they are can challenge that the government has a high burden to overcome any kind of burden to your free exercise. they use the word persons there but didn't define it if you go to the regular definition of persons in the congressional code. corporations, companies, associations they are all includeded on or abouts a closely held business their religious rights are violated. individuals have no constitutional right to work at these places. you know what you are getting into. if you apply for the job. you are working there now. haven't heard of any individuals complaining. that's a separate situation that could come down the line possibly. though i don't expect it. this is just b. just basic religious freedom not asking for much here thanks for being here. as i said a very important precedent. let me know. does this violate hobby lobby's religious freedom let me know what you think at twitter dave briggs tv. college kid tossed in the slamme
clinton, we'll never know whether she could be a consequential great secretary of state because the presidential essentially dominates. he does not delegate. and the reality is both at state and defense, the interesting question will be it seems to me on whether or not in the second term the president will allow his national security team to actually help shape the policy that the president validates and authorizes. >> that is a very interesting point. i had not heard that before. i have heard other things that make me think differently about the independence of state in this administration, but one of the things i think is also at stake in the haguele discussion is the kind of amazing enduring power of neo conservativism in washington d.c. long, long, long after it should have been really definitively discredited as a conception of the world. it is remarkable, the washington post editorial board, a key sounding board to this world view, is going after hagel, again, going after hagel in ways to make me like chuck hagel who i did not have strong feelings about prior to going afte
ourselves back here in three years facing yet another crisis in the eastern drc. secretary clinton, ambassador rice, undersecretary for political affairs ambassador wendy sherman and i have all spoken or met with senior congleeze rue wanden, you ganden, and u.n. officials in the past weeks and months to advocate for a peaceful end to the crisis. i have traveled to the region just last month with my british and french counter parts to press the governments to work together to stop the crisis and to address the underlying causes of instability. all three governments reiterated to us their commitment to these shared goals. in the u.n. security council we have taken action to ensure that five of the most senior m-23's most abusive commanders are now under targeted sanctions and we have placed those same individuals under u.s. sanctions. talks between the drc government and the m-23 began on december 9 in ugenda and are mediated as the chair of the international conference on the great lake regions known as the icglr. while the two sides have yet to begin substantive talks the current c

is hard to measure. bill clinton signed in my nutrition bill for school breakfasts, to bring breakfasts to elementary schools, all kids, not just poor children. it was a study to prove that -- to prove something we know absolutely but it had to get proven scientifically. children who come to school with a full stomach or fed at school do way better in their studies and in their attendance and in their attitude and we proved it without a doubt. after three years, it because great study and it is there on the shelf but we can't afford to do anything about it. we're not going to see every elementary student -- kids eat at home but they eat pop tarts, elementary children. my kids eat breakfast. but we have to feed our children so they can think. >> 20 years ago when you first came to congress, you became known as the former welfare recipient who is now a member of congress. first of all, tell us, remind us why you were on welfare for a while. what do you think of that? >> well, i was on welfare because when my children were 1, 3, 5 years old, their father was diagnosed manic depressant and
and lower middle class people. so, if everybody says let's go back to the clinton tax rates, that is the clinton tax rates. also, on more spending, the iraq war, we pulled the people out. on c-span about two months ago i turned it on a senate armed services committee. one not seen anybody report this. the state department sent in private contractors at a cost greater than if we would've had our troops in there. it is a fact right now, the figures don't lie, but liars figure. host: thanks for the call. guest: the president's proposal to roll back the bush tax rates for upper-income americans would raise probably about $100 billion a year. that includes higher tax rates on income earned over $250,000, higher estate taxes, and more. it's not going to solve our deficit problem, but it will have an impact. the question is, is that enough, too much, too little, when you combine it with spending cuts, to reduce the deficit to more stable level over the years? host: what we have seen in these negotiations between the principals, how does that portend in terms of what we will see in
and bill clinton can love it too. in "unthinkable" did the issue of torture become part of the debate? >> that's what it was. it was about taking the ticking clock scenario you're familiar with. the idea a man has put four nuke bombs on american soil, how far do you go to get it out of him? what are the lines you're prepared to go up to or beyond in order to to save the entire united states of america or everyone in it or do you have to negotiate with this man's human rights? so the film was a dramization of that. and again very difficult to read what the politics of it were. you can watch the entire film and again everyone has their own view of it and being the man who -- actually the film is about a cr i aagent who is working in iraq disappears and nobody knows where he is. he hops up in a mall in america and gives himself up and when he's brought in he says that he's converted to become a muslim and has put these bombs around the place. then sam jackson's character comes in and using torture and the whole film is about me being tortured by sam jackson and pushing you to see how far
the clinton administration. >> we'll show people right now that you like homebuilders and you like retailers, right? put that up. heebner likes retail, home building, what's the third one? automobiles. >> all early-cycle stocks. i like these stocks because the economy is going to be -- has a multi-year period of growth ahead of us and the biggest driver is rising housing prices and increase in residential construction and apartments and single family. we have an increasing shortage of housing in this family and we cut the production of houses way below the household formation and the industry is going to -- the construction industry will grow and that's going to stimulate the economy because its multiplier affects it. the biggest single impediment has been the huge decline in housing prices for the last five years. >> this is the first time since 2006 -- 2012 would be the first time since 2006 that home prices actually rise from a year ago. so one little piece of good news tonight. guys, thanks so much for joining us. ken heebner and brian kelly, you can see him on fast money. >> the markets
, which is let's not forget the fiscal cliff takes us back to the clinton era tax rates. i remember a lot of people on this network saying how great it was back then. we're going back to the clinton era tax rates and we boom then. the reason it didn't pinch us then, now it's deem and then it was great. i think the difference is the economy was improving, incomes were going up, housing prices were going up, people felt better. home prices are going up. that's a good thing, and the income issue is where we need to solve the problem. >> that's right. >> people can handle higher taxes if they make more money. part of that -- i'm going to get preachy here, reverend. the american people have to make a decision about what's important. keeping your neighbors employed. i know cost matters to a lot of people. my parents poet grew up poor. look the at what you buying if it koths made in mechanic and kips your neighbor working at a higher wage at a u.s. facility, think about that decision you're pak maiking. there's no country in the world -- sorry i'm off on a tangent. there's no country in the worl
.6 from the clinton administration from 35% now but taxes would also go up for lower income earners. the maximum low rate would revert back to 15% from 10% now. the for investors, capital gains rates would revert to 20% from 15% now. depending on the analysis, the average family would pay 2,000 to 4 thou more in taxes next year. back to you guys. tracy: peter we were talking about the protocol. you sent a great little ted it about. you have to explain it to the viewers. the house makes these rules, three day rule everyone gets opportunity to read but the house has the opportunity to throw them out of the window. >> that's right. the house can waive its rules so they can waive the three-day rule, but, also the three days isn't 72 hours now. it is like, it's three calendar days. if they post it one minute before midnight on one day, then have it for 24 hours for day two, they can post it for one men on day three, that apparently now counts as three-day rule. so 24 hours and two minutes. tracy: it's a joke. sound like my house. i make up the ruse as they go. lori: whatever, mom. tracy:
with me. there was hatred. but i'm not alone in that. you can take the last three presidents, clinton, bush, obama and people haven't just disagreed with them, they've hated them. to me, that's really terrible. that's a cancer that's eating at our politics. >> rick: he also said that even with the last three presidents being worse than he's ever seen, the last two years have been absolutely the worse that there has been an amount of inability to work together and compromise and it's completely stopping our system from making progress. >> clayton: he's been praised by republicans and democrats, but also vilified by both republicans and democrats, thinking he's grand standing and an opportunist. i read his book called "in praise of public service." i love to read all the politicians books when they came out. he believed that no -- >> gretchen: i liked that -- >> clayton: it was a thin back. i could get through in a flight with big type and wide margins. he talked about -- he didn't think we needed any sort of caps or term limits. he believed that we should have it open ended. >> gretche
rates revert to where they were in the clinton years and remember that only affects half of the taxpayers in the country because only half of the people pay income tax so it's not 97%. it's actually only the top half. and that may not be so -- such a bad consequence from his point of view. it also brings in a significant amount of revenue, which allows him to spend in the way that i think he'd like to do, so it could take a good bit of pressure off of him and, you know, i'm just concerned that he may not feel the same pressure to keep taxes low as the rest of us do. he probably is not a believer that high tax rates would impede the economy at least not to the same extent that i believe that. >> yeah. finally, you know, a lot of the bulls who are encouraging investors to get into the market over the next 12 months say that cap x would come back even with a band-aid, that companies with all their cash and their refinancings have money to spend and that they will spend it in the new year. are you seeing any empirical evidence that suggests that is actually so? >> well, i'm n
clinton on the welfare reform and president eisenhower and we have two words come presidential leadership on not just taxing rich people, we could tax all the rich people and cut their head off and it wouldn't help the fiscal cliff. we need to do prez both and i'm ready to work with him and so should a lot of other republicans and democrats. >> i think to get back -- i agree with everything largest said, but there's a tremendous duty. you've got a congress that has spent two years debating. we've written legislative language. i do want to hearken back to the fact that i offered back a bill that laid out all of these entitlement reforms that lamar supported but also revenues of almost a trillion dollars. i gave a copy of that bill to the white house -- >> right now to the u.s. senate. senators approved an extension of the foreign intelligence surveillance act, now considering amendments to a $60 billion hurricane ike sandy package. we expect a vote on two amendments to the hurricane relief bill. those from oklahoma senator tom coburn. for disaster assistance. it also would require the fede
key deal with tip o'neill and bill clinton did on welfare reform and president eisenhower in korea, we need two words -- presidential leadership. we need to do both and the president has to eat it, and if he does i am ready to work with him. >> let me add to that. to get back, i agree with everything lamar just said, but there is a tremendous direction of duty here. you have a congress that has spent two years debating, we have written legislative language. i want to hearken back to the fact that i offered a bill that laid out all these entitlement reforms that walmart has joined in supporting, but also had revenues in it come almost $1 trillion. i get a copy of that bill to the white house, to boehner, 2 pelosi, and said here is a way to solve this problem. there will be other ideas, but it is pretty amazing that we know the number one problem in our country is our fiscal solvency. every developed country knows that the greatest issue we face is a our fiscal solvency. economists on both sides have said this is the greatest problem we face. here we are on december 29 without a serious
